Origin: Italian, Spanish

Meaning: the Italian and Spanish form of Marius, an Ancient Roman name that is possibly derived from Latin mas meaning "male". However, it's also possible that Mars comes from an older source, perhaps Etruscan Maris (god of fertility and agriculture) of unknown meaning. 

Mars could also be a contracted form of an older name, Mavors (or Mavort) which could come from Latin verb mah or margh (to cut) and vor (to turn) essentially meaning "turner of the battle" (abarim-publications /Mars)



Variants:
  • Marius (Ancient Roman)
  • Marijo (Croatian)
  • Marios (Greek)
